now i gave installed new kernel with xfs--support and i have changed my old ext3-filesystem to XFS

my old filesystem is now on /dev/sda9 (is only the backup but bootable ) and the new on the /dev/sda1-8

I use lilo and i have two bootoptions

1) boot /dev/sda2 (that is / ) ==> /boot is on /dev/sda1

2) boot /devb/sda9 (in sda9 is all / and /boot and all other mountpoints)

The kernel and the init-file is in both /boot-directorys the same and this kernels are both supported XFS

I can boot /dev/sda9 but this filesystem is ext3 but i can mount under that system all XFS-devices from /dev/sda1-8

If i boot /dev/sda2  then comes the following message

You can not install the bootloader in a xfs partition. Lilo or grub will overwrite sector 0 which is where the XFS superblock lives.

You can install the bootloader either in the mbr or on a partition which does not contain a XFS filesystem (like swap).


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
